I'm trialling the JIRA software, and having immense difficulty doing some very basic things.
For example, editing a project's permissions scheme, I can find no way of editing multiple fields. To change each single field consists of:
And this is just to add one single user. A second user doubles this, or requires me to create a user group simply to allow me to choose these 2 people together.
Just for the Issues Permissions alone, I have to manually go in to 13 different items like this and change them one by one.
And there are 37 seperate items on the page, some of which I want to grant more than a single permission. An insane amount of time and effort.
Surely there must be a checkbox or shortcut to select multiple items?
Please follow in this manner.
That makes the order of the workflow very clear and systematic. Very helpful for me as a beginner user.
But it still seems as if there is no shortcut to the simple allocation of all permissions.
For example if there are 4 designers, but I only want 3 working on any given project, I have to do the following:
And then if I have 4 projects (project A, project B, project C, project D)
(There is no point to copy a permissions scheme because each project uses a different combination of designers)
This would not be a problem if I could select multiple items to edit simultaneously.
For example in project A, is there no way to simply grant every permission to the group “designers a”?
if there are 4 designers, but I only want 3 working on any given project, You have to do the following,
Now, instead of repeating the same,
Create a set of logical roles to use globally. Developer, Test, User, Admin, etc.
In the permission scheme, grant permissions to the right roles (e.g. create and browse for all roles, assign to dev, test and admin, and so-on). When adding a permission, you will have to do it one role at a time, but you can ctrl-click to select several permissions at a time.
Then in the projects, just put people into the right roles.
